A World-Wide Study into the name of ATHERTON.


This site will take-over from the site at www.athertonons.com in the near future. (by the end of March 2018).

I am a member of the GOONS (Guild of One-Name Studies) Reg No 5039 and I also have an ATHERTON Group on Facebook, please consider joining us.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding the details I have included - or indeed if you have any additional information. As I gather information regularly, I may have additional information that has not yet been included on this site - please ask.

If you feel that I've made a mistake - PLEASE LET ME KNOW - I'm only human!

I really would appreciate any comments you may have be it to add names, dates, places or (quite important) family photographs - please?
